Never Built: An Exhibition on the Los Angeles That Never Was

Los Angeles is famously known as “La-La Land” and for good reason. After all, many dreams flourish in this expansive city. Others, unfortunately, not so much, and L.A.’s A+D Museum has decided to put on an exhibition dedicated to all the architectural dreams that failed to see the light of day in “Never Built: Los Angeles.” Utilizing blueprints, drawings, renderings and models, projects from the mid-20th century are on full display, such as architects Pereira and Luckman’s futuristic plans for LAX containing circular hubs emanating from a central domed terminal that was deemed too radical by the city’s Building Department. A 60-mile suspended monorail system, by entrepreneur Murel Goodell, was rejected by the city of Beverly Hills because they wanted a subway line constructed underneath Wilshire Boulevard which, ironically, still has not been completed. Now Angelenos know who to thank for their city’s beloved traffic. To see more from the exhibit, visit A+D Museum.
